This intriguing ceramic sculpture explores the challenges of complex arrangements of clay. A mixed of glossy and dry glazes is fired numerous times to provide coarse and smooth effects. Indeed, the aim of this practice is to generate beautiful forms in the most bizarre manner to aid the appreciation of life's absurdities where things don't always make sense. Pollinating Creature transports the viewer away from the mundane and create a feeling of awkwardness, where its static form can seem alive.
